Volunteer Program

The Cedar Springs Public Schools Student Volunteer Program offers opportunities for you to become directly involved in helping those around us. Student volunteers contribute time and energy to address social issues and improve conditions in the community. Our program strives to increase student learning and awareness.
NOTE:  All student community service must be performed before or after school, during lunch periods, weekends, holidays, or vacations. No credit will be given for volunteering during school.

Why Volunteer? Do it for others - Volunteering your time & energy benefits everyone in our community.  It develops interaction among all groups of people, provides aid to those in need, enhances aspects of our community and produces feelings of hope and satisfaction in others. Do it for you - Get involved, have fun and meet new people. Gain satisfaction from your accomplishment. Learn about yourself and your interests while learning new skills. Volunteering in an area of interest can help you decide what your future occupation may be. It gives you hands-on experience during which you can gain knowledge about certain areas of study.

Recognition:  Students who complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service work throughout their high school career will receive an endorsement on his or her transcript. This transcript notation is important when filling out college applications, scholarship forms and job resumes.
